TWO women prison officers have admitted improper contact with inmates at HMP Hewell.
Jodie Pugh, 30, and Danielle Ofkants, 25, will face sentencing in July after pleading guilty at Worcester Crown Court to charges also including misconduct and wilfully tolerating the use of mobile phones.
A prisoner’s letter was found in Ms Pugh’s premises and she had admitted to having an intimate relationship with one inmate. However she said in an earlier statement although she had acted stupidly and with naivety she had never done anything for reward or financial gain.
Judge Richard Rundell allowed 14 days of fact finding, after Alex Warren prosecuting expressed doubt over Pugh’s motives.
The pair have been suspended from duty at HMP Hewell since October last year and both were released on unconditional bail.
